What to do if your drone is stolen?
If your drone is stolen whilst it is being securely stored at your premises or in your locked vehicle you will be covered for theft under your drone insurance policy.
When you realise that you may have suffered a burglary or your drone has been stolen you will need to contact the police to report the theft. You will be issued with a Crime Reference Number which you will need to use to process a claim.
The definition of Theft for insurance purposes means that forcible entry has been used to enter the property or vehicle.
Making a claim if your drone is stolen
If your drone has been stolen you must tell the police and your insurer immediately. It might be useful to take photographs of any damage to your property or vehicle to prove that force has been used to enter your property or vehicle.
Processing a theft claim we will need to take some details down of what happened, items stolen, the crime reference number and a few other details that can be seen on the claims page.
If you would like to submit a claim please visit the drone insurance claims page and follow the instructions.
